“German Foundation engages Dr. Jaja to provide training on legislative drafting for staff of the Federal Ministry of Justice”
In recognition of his expertise as one of the leading lawyers in the field of legislative drafting, Dr. Tonye Clinton Jaja was engaged to provide training for lawyers and staff of the Federal Ministry of Justice, National Assembly and the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies.
The training was funded by a German Foundation named Konrad Adenauer Stifung and it held at the Fraser Suites Hotel in Abuja from 5th to 6th December 2022.
Dr. Jaja was assigned to train the participants on two technical topics in Legislative Drafting namely “how to use mathematical formulae, graphs and charts in legislative drafting” and ” drafting of licensing legislation”.
Participants were thrilled as Dr. Jaja introduced them to the methods to apply to achieve the drafting of effective legislation in the two areas. Dr. Jaja provided ample examples of existing legislation and case law from Nigeria and Ghana to buttress the points.
It is instructive that even though Dr. Jaja was on his annual sabbatical leave, he was still invited to deliver the said lectures, this is in recognition of his preeminent position as one of the two Nigerian lawyers to be awarded a PhD in Legislative Drafting degree by the University of London.
